Egophony - e

Egophony is a distinct sound often likened to the bleating of goats. It can be identified by asking patients to repeatedly say "Eeee" and listening attentively for higher intensity over abnormal lung areas. In comparison, healthy regions typically produce clear pronunciation with no particular nasal tone, as demonstrated on the Egophony - a lesson.
